What kind of comment is that? You think abuse is about caring or not caring about a person? What a bizarre thing to say, and if you don't know about abuse, I probably wouldn't be writing about it like that. The little sub-plot with the trashy bartender, and her brother hooking up with her was distasteful to me and yet another thing about this book I didn't care to read about. Just no to this whole screwed up family.
Today, I skimmed some more, and checked out the ending. And that's when I knew sex wasn't in this book, Daniel seemed to barely be in here, and her family and huge cast of characters I couldn't begin to keep up, and don't care to, took up the majority of this.
There were so many new names later in the book. There's comments about someone being underweight, who's possibly the same woman who's pregnant. Chloe chokes on a jolly rancher right at the end of the book. I really don't like writing with no purpose like that. What is the point of her choking? She's doing the dishes, Daniel kisses her, leads her to the bedroom. Cut off the book right at the--I think--first romantic scene. And it's that writing I hate, like some YA authors that just say 'he kissed me' not how it felt, or anything descriptive at all.
Just he kissed me on the lips, boom its over.

I don't like this author's style of writing. That was the case here. Writing about mundane things, and characters that are just not likable or interesting in any way is not a book I'm gonna like. You would think that leaving your wedding, and taking off to live in a bungalow, renovating it, meeting a veterinarian would be exciting. And finding the love letters was like another 'plot' tacked onto this. Like a Nicholas Sparks novel or something. I wasn't even interested in the letters.
I really couldn't care less about anything in here. I wouldn't be interested in reading this author ever again. Boring writing, and doesn't write romance. When I got on goodreads to mark that I read this or DNF it, as was the case I saw it wasn't a romance book, and I was incredibly regretful that I didn't check this book out beforehand, because I wouldn't have read this had I known.
Romance is my genre, and I don't read plain fiction because I find books without romance boring.

So now I'm also upset with the volunteer that shelved this under romance, leading me to grab it in the first place. The only positive is that this was free, because they were going to trash it, and I took it home instead. At least there was no money lost here. This is going right back to the bookshop where it came from, and I think I'll personally make sure this gets into the fiction section where it belongs, and not romance.

She has encounters with a hot, really nice veterinarian, and a motorcycle cop who seems to spot her every time she comes to town. She gets a part time job at the local bar, where her brother starts dating one of the other bartenders. This sounds episodic--and it kinda is, but it's not. It's all about family and relationships and how previous generations affect their children, and their children's children, and stuff.

As the glass skittered off unbroken, a little voice said, "Run" and she did! This was the beginning of a book about Chloe, whom everyone in her small town had heard of once she joined the wedding "track team". If a poster was made of a "dysfunctional" family Chloe knew that her family would be on it.

As the book continues Chloe learns some interesting things about her family and discovers that people can change what they thought would surely be their destiny - a journey to continuing a long line of dysfunction.
I found this book at the Dollar Store and it was indeed a pleasant find. I will be adding other titles of Rendahl's to my "To Read" list.

Gorgeous setting, quirky and funny characters, two very interesting pets and one fixer-upper bungalow. And this is where Chloe comes to sort through things. This is also where she finds a stack of letters.

I found that the story was about Chloe growing into the person that she's always wanted to be. Without the approval of her mother or the manipulations of her ex-fiance.

It was a pleasant read, and just what I needed this weekend, but nothing spectacular. Jan 18, Linda rated it really liked it Shelves: Chloe is a runaway bride. She didn't plan on it, she just realize that the relationship just wasn't right until her groom-to-be, Mark, was unable to break the glass during their Jewish wedding ceremony - and she took that as a bad sign.
Even though she left Mark at the altar, she's still a very likeable character and as the story continues we learn about her extremely disfunctional family - making you wonder that she's so "normal".

Un-Bridaled by Eileen Rendahl
Memphis TapRoom will sponsor the event, providing locally brewed libations. I don't understand why the author chose to ignore this important fact. I would try another book by her. In California, at the altar of their Jewish wedding, Mark Hutchinson steps on the glass, but fails to break it. His bride Chloe Sachs suddenly hears a voce that says "run".
She flees the service leaving a bunch of shocked people especially the groom and her relatives as Chloe has always been the normal one. With no home of her own having given it up to get married, Chloe hides in her grandmother's rental property, a bungalow undergoing renovations to work on her conflicting feelings about Mark.
While in hiding, she finds some hidden letters between Laura and Jesse from WW II and soon meets a local veterinarian, Daniel Stein, who keeps coming up with reasons to visit Chloe. Chloe is a likable individual struggling with guilt over jilting Mark, but needs time to sift through her feelings. The aside guides for the runaway bride is unnecessary as Chloe through her story provides a much stronger assessment.
The letters add depth to a fine tale of a young woman struggling with the decision crossroads of her future simplified by her analysis of Mark over the course of the novel. See all 15 reviews.
